Does anybody have experience with the procedure of testaments/will in Botswana?

My uncle and aunt (Germans) lived there and got murdered in the worst way possible.

The family (living in Germany) is now trying to register the testament and will with the court in Maun.

The attorney (apparently the best one in town) is slow. Everybody else down there is SLOW as hell and it took us 3 weeks to just get the law firms account info to send a retainer fee to start the process.

Is anybody here familiar with how long it takes the court to register a will/testament if there aren't any complications?

The attorney does not tell us any fees/timelines .. NOTHING. I advised the family to find a different one but apparently, there aren't any better attorneys out there.
